Somewhere, A Book Deal Is Being Signed
I know there have been a couple of movies about perpetual college students, but here’s a CNN article about an undergraduate who has been studying at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater for 12 years. Undoubtedly, within about six months, one of those gift books that crowd the cash register will appear: How To Stay In School Forever or Education by the Dozen or some such title.
The funny thing about this article is that the University of Wisconsin regents instituted a “slacker tax” where long-term students have to pay double tuition. He’ll make it back with his first advance check.
